Ex­plore the his­tory and tra­di­tions of the Jewish hol­i­day of Purim in this mod­ern-day tale of wis­dom and courage set in a vil­lage toy shop where, just like Queen Es­ther, a lit­tle girl stands up for what is right. Cre­ate your own noise­maker, or grag­ger, from an old milk car­ton or make a tam­bourine from pa­per plates and join in the lively cel­e­bra­tion, filled with food, drinks, friends, fam­ily, and lots of love and laugh­ter.
